Preparation Programs and Professional Development for School Administrators -- AASA Committee for the Advancement of School Administration.
Wynn, Richard
The author sketches some of the characteristics and trends in programs for the preparation and continuing education of educational administrators. He claims that one of the most pervasive changes in the last decade or two has been toward theory-based content drawn from the social and behavioral sciences. The author sees three paradoxes in current programs. The first paradox centers on the anomaly of progress without gain, or the possession of more knowledge without having reduced the level of ignorance. The second paradox concerns the need to reconcile the new technology of management systems with the call for more humanistic education. The third paradox reflects the confidence crisis in leadership centering around the growing numbers of administrators who lack the confidence to lead. (Author/WM)
